Announcing | Handshake Launch + Namebase Educational Series
We believe that shared knowledge can incubate wonderful applications.
We are pleased to share two important updates with you
Today, the Handshake team announced that the mainnet will be released for miners around February 3rd. This means that trading $HNS on Namebase could be made available as soon as February 7th and the first series of names registration could be available as early as February 17th. If you haven't already, you can refer more friends to the waitlist to get bumped up on the list!
Second update, we are officially announcing our "educational series". We believe that shared knowledge can incubate wonderful applications. Our educational series will cover the key ins and outs of Handshake’s protocol and Namebase’s role as the custodian of handshake names.
For starters, we have listed out some topics we believe are fundamental to developing the knowledge you’ll need to bring more real world use cases to life. This content will be made available on our blog for now.
